GIACOMO BORGOGNO & FIGLI LANGHE FREISA 2014

7460.jpg

Italy — Piedmont • $23.95 • 88/100

Freisa is a native grape of Piedmont, now relatively rare, that is thought to have a parent-offspring relationship with Nebbiolo. The wine is mid to deep crimson with garnet highlights. Bright cherry, strawberry, raspberry and dusty earth aromas replay on the palate, where the tart acidity and elevated, angular tannins dominate. While I assume this is meant for early drinking, which I would recommend with food, there is such good acidity and tannic structure that it would be interesting to try this after a few years in cellar. • Tasted 2017-02-18 • LCBO id#388660 • Find it at your nearest LCBOTRIALTO WINE GROUP LTD.
